Oh, I love Big Bow and I’ve been using it so gingerly to try to make it last. I really hope it gets rereleased sometime.

Oh, smiles…lets see! Kalemat, Vintage Shalimar extrait (I’ve a 1960’s bottle), and a good, really red lipstick. Guerlain, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Too Faced, NARS, but its got to be luxe and absolutely NOT feather!

Tom Ford Violet Fatale, hands down! Guerlain Gigi is also a great one (maybe Gourmandise from the Rouge G L’Extrait line, too). I’m quite fair, so a bold lip just makes me feel…sassy. Urban Decay Anarchy is also an attention-getter!

By the way, Christine, would you happen to off the top of your head think of any dupes/close matches to Guerlain Gems? It’s so lovely!

Red lipstick always makes me happy, but I feel like that’s a color that demands more smize than smile. πŸ˜›

NARS Copacabana gets a real smile out of me. I like the way the product catches the light, and what better way to do than give myself a face lift with a smile? πŸ™‚ Cargo Prague blush is also a big one – so long to find that perfect neutral brown-pink blush, and now it’s mine!

MAC Handwritten – it always works – my perfect dark brown and I never tire of it.
Hourglass Ambient in Mood Light
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle – my signature scent for many years

Boy bait gloss by MAC, and anytime I can get my brows to look even it makes me smile I’m very new at “doing” them and it’s still quite challenging for me πŸ™‚

My fav (more) dramatic lippies! Apply, lip smack, smile! Current fav: UD Anarchy. Wearing glasses I prefer more dramatic lips than eye color

Chanel’s Joues Contraste Blush in Malice and Guerlain’s Crazy Terracotta Healthy Glow Powder. They make such a difference that I can’t help but smile!

Laura Mercier Artist Palette, NARS New Lover velvet gloss, Chanel Rose MoirΓ© nail polish (on a beautiful summer day) and my Kanebo cheek brush (softness redefined). Also, my foundation. So nice to see one’s complexion getting evened out.

This is a great question actually… I realized not that many products actually brought a smile to my face. I should remember this next time I feel like impulse buying.
